Retro Reviews: ‘Empire’s End’ by Chuck Wendig

Aftermath: Empire’s End is the final book in the Aftermath trilogy, written by Chuck Wendig and released in February 2017. 

It seems like each Aftermath book has a different genre or story style, while still having the same underlying themes and tones. Aftermath is a kind of a heist book where a ragtag group comes together to rescue someone. Life Debt is more of a traditional star wars book with a hint of political thriller added to the mix. Empire’s End is more of an epic war book with some smaller stories happening inside it. I like those aspects of all three, but because they are each so different, it makes it harder to like Aftermath as a cohesive trilogy.

Retro Reviews: ‘Rogue One’ by Alexander Freed

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the second adult film novelization in the canon written by Alexander Freed and released in December of 2016.

If you’ve read my previous novelization review of The Force Awakens, you know that novelizations have a high bar with me. In fact, unless it’s something I’m really interested in, I usually skip novelizations in media tie-in fiction because they rarely add anything of value and if they do, it’s nominal. There are very few novelizations that appeal to me, and most do not.
